Atlanta is known for its fusion of old Southern charm and sleek modernity. Peach trees break up the three impressive skylines in this bustling city, lined with historical buildings and glistening skyscrapers alike. There’s a wide range of fantastic tourist activities, regional Southern eateries, and boutique shopping. However, choosing where to stay can be overwhelming. As an up-and-coming area with fantastic nightlife, the Midtown district is quickly becoming a top choice for travelers. Here, I’ve compiled a list of the best budget hotels in Atlanta’s Midtown District.
The Magnolia Room @ Big House

As someone who loves quirky accommodation, the Magnolia Room is first on this list for that very reason. With huge windows that get plenty of natural light, you’ll have a view of the old Magnolia trees and Ponce de Leon Ave. This historic building, built in 1919, has taken many forms since, such as art collective, hostel, and charity. You definitely get a hostel vibe from the Big House, making it all the more cozy. You can wander the huge property but still remain close to the action of Midtown.
Cushy One-Bedroom Apartment
If you’d like your own place while exploring Atlanta, consider the Cushy One-Bedroom Apartment in the heart of Midtown. This apartment is charmingly decorated in a retro 1950’s design and features a full, separate bathroom and kitchen. You’ll have all of the amenities you need as well as access to a sunny courtyard. Most major attractions, bars, and eateries are within walking distance or a short taxi ride away.

The house is very cozy, blending chic modern design and a touch of classic charm. From here you can reach Piedmont Park on foot, as well as swanky local bars, a movie theatre, and grocery store. This is a fantastic budget option for travelers.

The location of the Artmore is unbeatable, with the MARTA metro stop just across the street. You’ll also be walking distance from the High Museum of Art and Alliance Theatre. If you’d prefer to spend some time relaxing, you can enjoy the tranquil courtyard or the new Cocktail Garden on sunny afternoons.
